Likewise, preliminary reports detail that at least 15,000 meters of wood have been affected, as well as damage to endangered plants.

In addition, the fire managed to damage several areas of the Mensura-Piloto National Park, which has been a protected area since 2008.

The Cuban authorities detailed that work continues to extinguish the fire with personnel from various regions of the country, supported by water-based firefighting equipment, helicopters, and small planes.

Despite this, dry conditions and persistent strong winds in the area continue to hinder work and encourage llamas to feed.

The fire started on February 18 in Pinares de MayarĂ­ and is one of the fires that continue to affect the country that has been hit by a severe drought. Other provinces where accidents have been recorded are Pinar del RĂ­o (west) and Villa Clara (center).
